This much-delayed episode sees us discuss last weekâs big releases at the cinema, including Brad Birdâs adventure tale âTomorrowland,â and horror remake âPoltergeist.â We also had time to chat about Rosamund Pikeâs latest twisted thriller, âReturn to Sender,â and Cal reveals all about Samuel L. Jacksonâs âBig Game,â which had a rather ludicrous plot setup to live up to. Simon Peggâs recent outspoken antics may have upset comic-book geeks far and wide, but his thoughts on modern blockbusters instigate a lengthy chat about the future of the industry, while the prizes from the Cannes Film Festival dredge up longstanding observations about the festivalâs politics. We may only be in June, but tune in to find out which leading performance Cal has already declared the worst of the year, which fishy figurehead Nick Nolte reminded Pete of, and which lesser-known actress emerged as the star of her film.
The week's news: Discussing some interesting birthdays in the world of film, Simon Pegg's assault on modern studio filmmaking, and the prizes from the Cannes Film Festival!
